Great Falls High, CMR to Compete in Crosstown Boxing

Posted: Updated:
The Crosstown rivalry in Great Falls will add a new chapter to it's history when Great Falls High and CMR step into the boxing ring on Friday.

The event is not officially recognized by the Montana High School Association, but event is allowed to use the Crosstown label.

Fighters from each school, with the exception of a couple Belt students that will be fighting for CMR, will step into the ring. The winning team will take home a trophy.

The rumble is the brain child of GFH grad Mike Martell of Electric City Boxing and CMR grad Todd Foster, who recently opened up Kid Foster's Boxing Academy.

This event will be the first "smoker" since the 80's. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the fights starting at 7:30 p.m. at Paris Gibson school. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

A portion of the proceeds will go back to the Great Falls High and CMR athletic departments.

Some of the fighters include Great Falls High's Randy Keesler (who recently won a state wrestling title), CMR's Chase Tay and Belt's Eddi Fernandez.
